This seminar focuses on peace and security, and explores the three recent review processes conducted in this field: the peace operations review, the review of the peacebuilding architecture and the review of the implementation of security council resolution 1325.

This seminar is the first seminar out of three in the UN70 seminar series, which NUPI co-organises with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and its UN70: A new Agenda project.

It focuses on peace and security – one of the pillars on which the United Nations’ work is based – and explores the three recent review processes conducted in this field: the peace operations review, the review of the peacebuilding architecture and the review of the implementation of security council resolution 1325.

The presentations of each of these reviews will outline the steps of the different review processes and highlight the key challenges identified and recommendations made. The discussion aim to identify the reviews’ implications for reforms in the field of peace and security.

The event will be streamed on YouTube:
